Tech Overview
No other self-propelled windrower helps you produce quality hay faster, more efficiently, with greater
precision, less fatigue, better fuel economy and lower operating costs. Software on the WR Series allows
a variety of components to communicate electronically and execute many of its functions automatically.
These components include:
Steering System
Auto-Steering
V-Cool™ Cooling System
Auto Rotary Compensation
Automatic Reel Speed
Automatic Header Float
A NEW Auto Rotary Compensation
The advanced Rotary Header
Speed Compensation automatically
compensates for different field
conditions. As ground speed increases
the windrower will automatically increase
header knife speed to compensate. As
ground speed decreases, the knives will
slow down.

Our new OptiCruise function allows
for more precise speed control when
operating in rough conditions. The
two buttons on the back of the new
hydro handle allow you to increase and
decrease your speed smoothly (0.6 mph
increments in 1st & 2nd speed range, 2
mph in 3rd speed range) without having
to move the control handle.

AUTO-GUIDE™ 3000 IS THE NEXT BIG STEP IN GUIDANCE.
AGCOMMAND™ PUTS YOU IN COMPLETE CONTROL.
All of our Challenger WR Series windrowers come ready to
install the Auto-Guide 3000. You’ll get the best windrower
auto guidance in the industry with a complete, integrated
autosteering system that works seamlessly with the
FieldMax Monitor. It uses advanced satellite navigation
to steer the windrower’s ground drive pumps, removing
much of the strain of field operations and leaving the
operator free to focus their attention on optimizing
performance settings and monitoring work more closely.
AGCO’s AGCOMMAND is an industry-leading tool that
allows wireless transfer of your vehicle data back to
your office. So you can optimize performance, monitor
vehicle service intervals, monitor operating costs and
generate easy-to-use information to drive efficiency and
productivity.
Running up to 17.5 MPH, this highly advanced but
simple-to-use automatic steering system will help you
reduce input costs as well as operator fatigue.
At the end of the day, significantly reduced
operator fatigue equals
increased accuracy and
greater efficiency on
the farm.
AGCOMMAND uses GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite
System) applications to tell you where your machines are
and what they’re doing.
The data is transferred to
a secure internet site that
can be viewed from your
laptop, iOS phone or iOS
tablet.

Our Challenger WR Series Windrowers feature AGCO POWER™ 6.6L, 4.9L and
4.4L engines that deliver up to 225 rated HP and generate a higher torque curve
at 2160 max engine rpm, while also being able to boost up to 240 HP at 1900 rpm.
These engines are specifically built to tackle the toughest ag applications while
delivering more torque and greater efficiency.
EMPTY FIELDS. FULLER TANKS.
Not only do Challenger WR Series windrowers cut hay, they cut fuel costs, too.
Pair the efficiently large fuel tank, at 130 gallons, with better fluid economy and
you’ll run all day and do it for less money.
ALL IN GOOD MEASURE.
Keep tabs on all the action with the FieldMax Monitor that monitors fuel
economy by three different measurements, all in real-time – acres per gallon,
acres per hour and gallons per hour. With the help of this information, operators
can make adjustments to optimize fuel economy even while they’re working.

The toughest hay conditions are no match for an AGCO
POWER engine with QuadBoost™ Technology, which
offers a high torque curve beginning at 1400 RPM and
maintaining torque output to 1900 RPM. When it comes to
fluid economy, maintaining this high torque at field RPM
levels generates serious fuel savings. At the same time, the
technological advancements of Tier IV emissions control
guarantees lower total fluid consumption so you can
extract every last bit of work from every last drop of fuel.
LOWER YOUR MAINTENANCE
Our 3rd generation SCR/cEGR technology saves you more
on DEF and diesel fuel across the board. And unlike the
12
Performance/V-Cool
competition, there’s no Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) to be
cleaned or replaced. The result? You save time and money
while helping your engine run better, stay cooler and
last longer.
STABLE TORQUE AT ANY LOAD
Simply put, the 4-valve per cylinder engine design supplies
more and denser air to increase HP, torque output and fuel
efficiency at field RPM levels. Quad Boost on the WR 9860
provides even more airflow into combustion chambers to
provide the highest possible combination of performance
and efficiency.
KING OF THE ROAD
RUNNING HARD IS A BREEZE WITH V-COOL.
Our advanced drive control system pumps more hydraulic fluid
in the field ranges to provide higher torque and speeds up to
AutoGuide 3000’s max field working speed of 17.5 mph. On the
road, more flow is delivered to increase RPM for transport speeds
up to 22 mph. It’s speed that really pays off when you need to cover
serious ground, giving you maximum control, responsiveness
and stability.
Cut heat buildup and help keep your windrower’s cooling system
running at optimum efficiency with our self-cleaning V-Cool
System. It’s designed to keep itself clear of debris so you don’t
have to do the dirty work. Ultimately, you’ll experience reduced
service time, optimized efficiency and save on fuel.
Because the engine radiator and two hydraulic coolers are
arranged in a unique V-shape, airflow makes a single pass through
each element rather than passing through multiple elements on a
typical stacked design. The system’s temperature-activated, variable
speed fan increases cooling efficiency by lowering RPM when the
system needs less air.
Additionally, the hydraulic drive automatically reverses the fan
every 15 minutes, or sooner if required, to forcefully clean the
intake screen while you work to eliminate the need for rotary
screens or brushes. This is a windrower so advanced that it knows
how to clean itself.

Comfort
We have redesigned and enhanced comfort and performance features within each Challenger WR9800
Series cab to give you a more inviting place to be on those long days in the field. Every feature, every
improvement has been added in response to what hay producers have told us they need to increase
efficiency and reduce fatigue.
The new WR9800 Series offers you better suspension, back to front – starting with a solution to the
common problem of rear end shock and bucking. With two gas shocks and a spring in the center of the
axle, plus Flex Steel wheel support, our GlideRider system transfers load to the main frame, so bounce is
reduced and comfort is increased – even at higher field speeds.
SIT ON TOP OF THE WORLD
HEAR AND FEEL THE DIFFERENCE
Our deluxe semi-active air suspension seat features
cooling and heating, side-to-side plus fore and aft
movement with adjustable hydraulic suspension.
This plus our GlideRider™ rear axle suspension
and air suspension cab delivers serious comfort.
Our lower-decibel Tier IV engines, quieter
hydraulics, added sound-deadening material and
thicker floor mat all make the cab quieter and
you happier in your workplace. In the midst of all
that peace and quiet, you’ll notice real ergonomic
improvements, like optional automatic climate
control, an upgraded, more intuitive side console
and a steering column with a greater choice of
steering wheel positions and adjustments.
With pressure settings from 15 to 35 psi, our
optional cab suspension system provides a ride
similar to that of a tractor cab – a real plus when
you’re operating on pivots, borders or conditions
involving dips, ruts, or ditches. A unique, deluxe
semi-active air suspension seat takes constant,
split-second readings of field conditions and adjusts
its suspension instantaneously to reduce bounce.
It also keeps you cooler or warmer as needed.

If you’re determined to bring higher productivity
and faster field speeds and cut thick crops with less
daily maintenance, there’s no faster way to do it
than by driving a Challenger WR Series windrower
equipped with a RazorBar™ disc head. These headers
bring higher productivity and faster field speeds and
require less daily maintenance.
With an industry-exclusive low-profile 13’ or 16’
RazorBar cutterbar, each gear assembly and idler
gear can be individually removed without taking the
whole cutterbar apart. And there’s no need to split
the gear modules for servicing. Easy to unbolt and
reassemble, the idler gears and pins are removed
through the top of the module, so there’s also no
need to remove the rock guards for servicing.
16
Disc Headers
CONDITIONER ROLLERS
Crimp vs. Crush. Competitive windrowers still feature
systems that condition your crop by crushing both
the stems and the leaves to accelerate drying time.
But damaging the leaves means lost nutrients, lesser
quality hay and lower feed value.
With a single set of HerringBone Steel-On-Steel
conditioner rolls and header speed control, the 9195
RazorBar header crimps stems every three to four
inches. To speed drying time and further preserve
leaf quality, our 9196 and 9186 models feature the
TwinMax™ Advanced Conditioning System, which
“double crimps” the crop through a total of four
conditioning rolls, resulting in a crimp approximately
every one to two inches. Conditioner roll pressure is
maintained by a hydraulic roll tensioning system, for
consistent roll pressure, effective crimping and the
best quality hay.
Our RazorBar™ cutter bars feature a low-profile,
spur gear cutterbed that’s thinner in design for
closer cutting – so you can slice through lush
alfalfa, tangled grass and tall Sudan with ease.
Our Turbulence Reduction Roll features built-in
side augers to produce better windrows with
fewer drives and a better cut in light crop.
Dual hydraulic motors, which drive the cutterbar
from each end, provide an even torque load
across the entire width of the cutter bar for
increased reliability.

Draper and Sickle Headers
Turn any Challenger WR Series model into a high capacity swather by simply adding a
Challenger 5300 Series DynaSwath draper head, now equipped with a Hesston designed
reel built for durability and performance. Choose from five center deliver header widths
ranging from 20’ to 40’ or three double swath models. Center Delivery or Shiftable Deck
is available on headers 25’ and up. These shiftable draper heads
let you position the swath at the center or to the left or right
side of the header for double swaths. Because our sickle drive is
hydraulically driven, it stays in rotation at all times, so there are no
peak starting and stopping loads. That means no matter how close
you’re cutting, the 5300 Series delivers smooth, clean performance
in canola, cereals, grass, forage or specialty crops.
Our standard sickle and guards are double-heat treated with longer
tangs for better cut quality low to the ground. To reduce excessive
wear on the knifeback and the wear blades, we utilize a new optional
SCH Roller Guide that requires less power, reduces friction on the
knifehead and enhances overall cutting performance.
TOP OF THE STACK SICKLE BAR HEADERS
Leave it to the company that invented the sickle bar header to provide the smooth, clean
cut you demand. Available in 14-, 16- and 18-foot cutting widths,
Challenger’s 9126 header features our trademark dual augers, along with a double sickle
and a single pair of conditioner rolls. Available in 14- and 16-foot cutting widths, the 9146
model boasts our exclusive TwinMax™ Advanced Conditioning System, which features
four independently controlled, steel-on-steel conditioner rolls for quicker drying, higher
nutrient retention and simply better hay in every bale.
Our hydraulic roll tensioning system featured on all sickle bar headers maintains consistent
conditioner roll pressure for effective crimping and the highest quality hay.
